HALO: FAITH - The Battle by ApneicMonkey HALO: FAITH - The Battle by ApneicMonkey
In between surviving earthquakes, etc I've been doing a bit of work for a new short film set within the HALO universe called HALO: FAITH. The team at Majic Pictures have been doing a great job so far recreating Spartan armor and weapon props and have already completed principle photography on what will most likely be (roughly) 12 action packed minutes of film.

I was given free reign to develop some production art based on the script so I picked 4 scenes that I felt would really capture both what the team needed and what the fans (and hopefully everyone else) would want to see.

Follow the film's progress on their Facebook page here: [link]

The other 3 images I did can be found here:

I appreciate the interest but you don't just say to an artist: "How about I go ahead and use this for my book cover" without any explanation of the book or why the image in question fits or the countless other things that an artist considers before handing over their work. It's very flippant of the hard work an artist puts into their creations.

This is really good, but it is too bad the movie was cancelled.

They can. Gunners could shoot the legs and then shoot the scarabs in the butt.

Reach was an amazing game, don't get me wrong, but there was a virtual mountain of missed opportunities in that game. One that got a lot of attention from gamers was the space battle. In my opinion, this major battle is another, as you basically just take part in small skirmishes along a cliff, with the real awesome parts going on below the cliffs. This pic is awesome cuz this is what we could have gotten. Hopefully halo 4 will have it's focus on all the right spots.

It's a short film due out later this year (for free on the internet). It's goal is to get the attention of Hollywood that a real HALO movie can be done and without a huge budget. :)

Some time around September (hopefully). Filming has finished and the team is now into post-production and I'm doing some re-designs of a few Covenant to make them scarier and more realistic. :)

If Battle: LA and Skyline got made (crappily) why not Halo? Those 2 movies are pale in comparison to the Halo mythos.

What an amazing piece. I really want to do some cool shots like this. I mean, even down to the dutch angle you are using makes it much more epic.

Great job. Thanks for the link. I will have to follow the progress.

Thanks for the compliment. I try to challenge myself a little more every time, and try different ways to work. But no need to comment on my stuff. I know you are busy, and I just generally enjoy seeing your stuff show up.
